I have used SurfYourName several times for tech support.  When I got my new laptop they setup all of my emails and got me up and running.  I recently had a virus issue and they were able to "kill" the virus and get my computer back up and running.  I don't know what I would have done without them!  They return my calls and are always so helpful.  Would recommend them to any of my friends or colleagues!

I bought a new printer for my home and could not get it to work to save my life.  I tried for over an hour to get it to print and NOTHING!  My son, who is more tech savvy, tried and couldn't get it to work either.  I called Erik with Surf Your Name and he was able to remote connect to my laptop and had my new printer working in 30 minutes.  I didn't have to leave the house or talk with someone from an overseas call center.  It was worth every penny to get my printer working!  Thanks Erik and Surf Your Name!

I have been a web design customer and IT customer of Surf Your Name for over 10 years now. They have helped me with several business websites, facebook advertising, remote computer help, and answering my hundreds of questions. I use a computer allot but always seem to need a little help from time to time and all I have to do is make a phone call and they are there to help me! I know I will be with them for many years to come and could not say enough great things about them. If you are looking for computer help, virus removal, web design, website hosting, marketing, or just about anything that you need for your business, GIVE THEM A CALL! You will not be disappointed!

I have been working with SurfYourName for about 2 years now. I had a website that was basically junk since it wasn't doing anything for my business. Not to mention I paid allot of money for it 2 years ago! I worked with Erik and got a brand new website and it has paid for itself over and over in the past 2 years. I call him about once a month and they make changes to the site for me with specials I run. My laptop got a virus about 6 months ago and they were able to kill it and get my laptop working again without me leaving my office! I always tell them how luck I am to have them, but I figured leaving a review would let more people know about them and send some business their way. It has been 2 years now and I have had several other people try and get my website business and I just laugh at them. I have already found the best and don't need anyone else. I feel like Erik and his team actually care about my business and that not something you find anymore. Thanks again to Erik and SurfYourName...you guys are the best and have a VERY VERY VERY happy client!
